SUBSTANCE ABUSE POLICY
Florida Keys Community College has, since its inception, specifically prohibited, on
campus or at college functions, the possession, sale, exchange, consumption, or
giving away of any stimulant, depressant, narcotic, or hallucinogenic drug having
a potential for physical or mental abuse, except on prescription by a physician or
dentist. This policy is in accordance with the Federal Drug Abuse Act. Students
who are found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to immediate and
possibly severe disciplinary action, including probation or suspension. Florida
Keys Community College shares the increasing national concern regarding
new evidence of the danger of substance abuse. This policy has been updated
and adopted as a result of true concern for our students, employees and the
community as a whole. In order to discourage substance abuse by college
students or employees and provide community education, the following activities
will be carried out on a routine basis:
Periodically articles will be placed in the student newsletter VOICES
concerning information on substance abuse. This information will
be timely according to current concerns and will include scientific
reports of effects to the user and ways to identify abusers.
In-service training for college employees will be held periodically
and will include information on substance abuse, its identification,
and referral recommendations. Seminars and presentations will be
held periodically for both the student body and the community
addressing substance abuse, its effects, and sources of assistance.
A college credit course on substance abuse will be offered to the
community periodically. The course will be updated annually to
include timely information of current abuse problems.
College employees will make every attempt to participate in
community activities or committees dealing with substance abuse.
